Biography

“I love to discuss preventive mental health with young families. I am passionate about advocating for issues surrounding children's safety as well as mental and physical health.”

Dr. Edwards is board certified in pediatrics. She is interested in helping families understand how a child's brain development and early experiences influence parenting strategies.

She is the lead provider in practice for the State Quality Improvement Collaborative and is currently the secretary-treasurer for the South Carolina Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as the South Carolina medical director for Reach Out and Read of the Carolinas. She was a finalist for the Atrium Health Teal Acorn Award for Community Service in 2018.

Dr. Edwards spends much of her free time serving the community. She has served on multiple boards, including the advisory board of Girls on the Run, the board of Catawba Mental Health and the board of Affinity Healthcare (FQHC). She also enjoys collaborating with Eat Smart Move More York County to help make the healthy choice the easy choice in her community.

She has won several awards, including the Palmetto Serves Volunteer Award for Service to youth and families, a Palmetto Silver Award from the State Board of Education and an Outstanding Volunteer Award for her role in starting the community garden project at the Applied Technology Center.

At age 15, she had a spinal cord injury with resulting partial paralysis. She was fascinated by how all members of her healthcare team came together to help her heal, and she wanted to be a member of a team like that.

She received her medical degree and completed her residency and a fellowship at the University of Virginia.

Dr. Edwards and her husband, a cardiologist, have 3 grown children. She enjoys swimming and going on long walks with her family and their dog. She loves to garden and has volunteered to help school children establish gardens so that they can learn how to eat well and spend time outside.
